Contact: Gary Peters, Lead Pastor,
• We are a charismatic church with contemporary worship in a casual atmosphere. (No ties!)
• We are passionate about worship, evangelism, and discipleship.
• We sing the most current choruses and our musical style is rock/alternative/blues. (Dude, we rock!)
• Our Sunday morning attendance averages around 200 adults, youth, and kids
• We currently have a four member staff team consisting of Lead Pastor, Executive Pastor, Children’s Director, and Office Manager. Our Current Youth Pastor is being sent out with our blessing to plant a church in the Sacramento area.
• Our leadership style is relational and team-oriented. (Translation: the lead pastor is not a jerk!)
• We are located on the beautiful Bay area peninsula, smack dab between San Francisco and San Jose. 15 minutes from SFO and 25 minutes from SJC.
• Our church is located in downtown Redwood City where we are trying to make a lasting difference in our community and in our world. Redwood City is the county seat of San Mateo County with a population just under 1 million. 3-4% of our county are church attendees. In other words…”the fields are white..”
• Our Core Values: Real, Reaching, Relevant, Relational (check out our website to see what this means)
• First and foremost, we are looking for someone who has a fervent, unquenchable, and sincere love for God and a for young people
• Secondly, we need someone who has an obvious and proven gift for leading this generation’s youth into a dynamic and deep relationship with the Lord.
• He or she must be teachable, humble, and have a servant’s heart. (No superstars, please!)
• People skills and the ability to work with teens and their parents. (You know how hard that can be!)
• Ability to lead worship is a plus, but not a must.
• Experience as a youth pastor is not necessary, but the heart and gifts are.
• This position includes college, high school, and junior high school aged youth.
• Basic computer skills are helpful. (Like, can you turn it on?)
• Having a sense of humor is as important as having a pulse. (You gotta love to laugh!)
• Please send PICTURE and RESUME
